Things that are pissing you off. - Page 9

The verb in French is "se doucher" as far as I know, so it's a reflexive verb. I always used "prendre une douche" when I was there.

I think writing this makes me a douche.

NB: dusj is shower in Norwegian, pronounced the same way.

Another Norwegian? Mornmorn. Right now, the douchebag threads annoy me, particularly when they cause people I consider valuable members to leave this place.

I recently saw clips of a documentary about a hospital treating wounded soldiers in Baghdad. There was a shot of a doctor placing an amputated arm into a plastic trash bag.

Well, that's horrible, of course, but what did you expect? A full military part-burial?

This shitty ass community college website that is horrendously arranged, has serious functionality issues, and wasted the last hour of my life is pissing me the fuck off. It's bad enough that I can't even get into another shitty ass state school that I don't fucking want to go to, now this rinky dink piece of c. 2001 shit is trying to further exacerbate my humiliation. School must have been so much better prior to the popularization of the computer. The page that should, theoretically, display the e-mail address and telephone number of the relevant contact is a broken link. Fuck academia and fuck me for my implicit support of this bullshit. I can't wait to receive my receipt for trading a few years of my life at the most geographically convenient apparel merchandising company that happens to hand out degrees on the side. Modernity has failed. Fuck you.

This bitch in Chicago was walking her dog in the park and for some reason (probably by accident), some manhole cover was electrified and when the dog stepped on it, the thing got electrocuted. Ya, that sucks. This got her SOOO UPSET and she's been all over the news crying her fucking eyes out over this dog. You'd think she lost her entire family in a car accident. She had to go to Northwestern Hospital b/c she didn't feel emotionally able to return home. GOD. SACK THE FUCK UP.

I'd miss my dog more than some members of my family.

Yeah, if that were my dog, I'd put myself on suicide watch for a week or so. What a horrible way to watch your family pet go. However, I probably wouldn't go on the TV news and sing my sob story to everybody though... that's what the SF is for Lawsuit against city of Chicago in 5, 4, 3...

Americans trying to speak french (in an authentic way) is pretty much useless unless they can get rid of how they pronounce vowels, and especially "r".

I started speaking french quite young and currently live in a french city, and still struggle with sounding half decent. If I'm not around french people I don't pronounce words correctly (to the extent of my abilities) because I think it makes you sound like a pretensious loser.

I'd still die to hear Kenneth Pollock and his friends speak "french".

+1.

I'm sure we could bribe some special-reciting, name-dropping waiter (or waitress) to tape record him...

Trying to communicate is so much more important than this ego-driven insecurity bullshit whatever.

People who make no effort at correct capitalization, punctuation, or spelling. Mistakes are understandable, but fucking hell, learn to write! And this applies even for forum posts or e-mails.

It is midnight now, and somewhere within the huge apartment complex in which I live there is a dog barking like crazy. arghhh
